2008 St. Louis Cardinals Walk Out Song Playlist
Here is a partial list of walk out songs for the 2008 St. Louis Cardinals.
The standout in this list is definitely Brian Barton with Sam Cooke singing "A Change Is Gonna Come". It has to be the first instance we've come across of a player walking out to a swell of strings and setting a tone of humble persistence.
Also of note, it seems like "Givin the Dog a Bone" and "Shake a Leg" are the only songs from Back In Black we haven't seen on one of these lists yet. Of course, the Phillies are coming up next, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
I spent a while trying to decipher the identity of Albert Pujols' song. He's done so much for my Fantasy team this year, it's the least I could do. It turns out it's likely a song from a 2005 Christian hip hop compilation called "Crunkfest 2: Godlova" from Arrow Records. Thank you, Yahoo! Answers.
Here is the current list, as provided by the Cardinals' Guest Services division. Note: This list isn't the exact text sent by the team. I cleaned up some of the data to avoid confusion (like changing "Click Click Take A Picture" to "Know What I'm Doin'", changing "Black Sabbath" to "Ozzy Osbourne", et cetera).
